Nathan and his friend, Karen, find a website that has photos of
children who were believed to be missing or abducted. They soon stumble
across one of Nathan's baby pictures on the website. Before he can
question his parents, they are both killed. Nathan and Karen set out to
discover the truth behind Nathan's real identity.
After thinking about it, I realized that this movie was pretty adequate. Or even less than. Yes, I am a fan of Taylor Lautner, but this film wasn't that great.. The acting was just mediocre, and the plot was not at all intriguing. If a person who didn't know Taylor Lautner watched this, I bet they would have been very very unimpressed with this movie. The plot wasn't very strong. It didn't hold my interest for long. I did like the concept of the film, yes, but I didn't like its execution. Here's hoping for a better film starring Taylor Lautner.

Blair Willows is chosen for a scholarship at Princess Charm School. She
must work hard in order to graduate and become a competent royal
lady-in-waiting. However, there are people who want to see her fail and
will do anything to make sure that happens. These people also know a
big secret about Blair..
I am not part of the target range of this movie, but it did appeal to me. The innocence of the movie was nice, for what it's worth. It kept me entertained while I was bored. I'm sure any young girl who is a fan of a.) Barbie, b.) fairies or c.) pretty dresses, will like this movie.

Ever since I was a child, I always did like fairy tales- the tale of
the boy who would not grow up, included. The first version of "Peter
Pan" that I knew and liked was the Disney version. When I saw that
there was another version of "Peter Pan" (aka. this 2003 version), my
younger self must have thought that she should give it a try. In other
words, I had bought this DVD just out of plain curiosity. That was
smart thinking of my younger self, because until now, this adaptation
remains to be my favorite of J.M. Barrie's tale.
I loved this version of "Peter Pan"! I found that it captured the true essence of the magic tale. Jason Isaacs, Jeremy Stumper and Rachel Hurd-Wood were first class in this one! What I particularly liked was the chemistry between Peter and Wendy. Jason Isaacs was also great here! After re-watching this on Star Movies, I realized that Jason Isaacs really is a superb actor. He managed to play both Mr. Darling and Captain Hook wonderfully.
I recommend this film to anyone and everyone. It left me with a happy feeling, and some questions for myself and my life. In general, this film just made me love and appreciate my life.

A Russian spy accuses Evelyn Salt, a CIA agent, of planning the
assassination of one of the President of Russia. She quickly goes on
the run, which makes her fellow CIA agents question who she really is
and what her motives really are.
I really did like the action that was in this film. I was enthralled with the fighting scenes, the car scenes, and just the whole action aspect of the film. Angelina Jolie did good with this one. Although the plot did get predictable, I was still quite impressed. Sure, it could have been a lot deeper, but this was meant to just be a fun action film to watch. It's really as simple as that! I don't get why others don't seem to like this one. I'm already excited for the possible sequel of this movie.

France, she discovers that her aunt's business has gone downhill.
Barbie is determined to make sure her aunt's business doesn't go down
the drain, just like how Barbie's acting career did.
I am not part of the target range of this movie, but it did appeal to me. The innocence of the movie was just nice. It kept me entertained. I I'm sure any young girl who is a fan of a.) Barbie, b.) fairies or c.) pretty dresses, will like this movie.

In the future, people stop aging when they reach 25. When they reach
that age, they are required to earn more time themselves or they will
have to die within a year. Will Salas, a 28-year-old worker from the
ghettos, is accused of murdering and stealing more than a hundred years
from a man. He must clear his name and find a way to fight the system.
I've wanted to watch this movie ever since it came out in theaters. I liked the movie's idea. It seemed very intriguing. Sad to say, after having watched it, my high hopes were for naught. The execution of the movie fails.
Justin Timberlake was great. Amanda Seyfriend was like cardboard, on the other hand. Together, they had no chemistry. Aside from that, the script was very forgettable. I hardly remember anything from this film. It was just a disappointment. Enough said. It's sad because the movie's concept really does seem interesting. Save your time and don't watch this one.

It's Christmas season 2011! Now, let me ask people this: Is there
anything better than curling up and watching a feel-good Christmas
movie during the holidays? Probably, but heh. That's what I did. This
film was one of the movies that I chose to watch so that I could get
even more into the Christmas spirit. Who doesn't love happy Christmas
movies, anyway? :)
In this film, we have an adaption of the world-famous story by Charles Dickens-- Barbie style. The movie begins by Barbie telling her little sister a story about a particular woman, Eden, who just doesn't enjoy the holidays. Eden basically hates Christmas and lives by Aunt Mary's motto: In a selfish world, the selfish succeed. Several Christmas apparitions visit Eden to set her right.
I chose this to be the first Christmas film I watched for the holidays. That was right of me. Young children could possibly find joy and entertainment in this Barbie film. Parents don't have to worry about 'scary things', either. The film has been padded with much-added humor that only children will enjoy. Still, to be fair, it was nice to watch this film. Barbie movies are filled with innocence that I do enjoy! But I didn't like their retelling of Dickens' novel. Fans of Dickens' should steer clear from this one.

I watched "Valentine's Day" last year and didn't like it. I was kind of
hesitant to watch "New Year's Eve" because I feared it would just be
like that movie. However, a number of people said that this was a good
movie and it was way better than Marshall's previous film. I'm glad I
listened to those people, because I actually did like this movie.
Watching this gave me a fuzzy feeling. It made me excited for 2012 to come. It's funny because we haven't even had Christmas yet! Gosh, I love holidays. Movies like this just fuel my excitement even more.
This movie's cast composed of A-listers! My favorites were Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Sofia Vergara and Jake T. Austin, to name a few. Zac Efron was amazing! I loved watching him in all his scenes. As for Sofia Vergara, my eyes just went straight to her every time she was on. She was just as funny as her role on "Modern Family". I enjoyed watching familiar faces pop up here and there as I was watching the movie.
In this movie, clear connections aren't immediately seen. But that's what makes this movie interesting. I do think that "Valentine's Day" did a better job of intertwining everyone's own personal stories, that way everyone really was connected. In this movie, not everyone had connections with one another. But that's all right. The movie still managed to make me shed a tear many times throughout the film. It was that nice. I wasn't expecting to want to cry.
I liked this film better than Marshall's first. Maybe it was the buzz of the upcoming festivities that made me biased. Who knows? I just know that this film really made me excited for the upcoming year. And it also rekindled my love for Zac Efron and Jake T. Austin!

Tintin is a reporter who has unexpectedly gotten involved in a mystery
concerning a ship. He sets out on a journey to find hidden treasure
with Captain Haddock. However, there is also someone dangerous after
the same prize.
I know who Tintin is. I may not have grown up with him, but I am familiar with his comic books. I only knew very few details about Tintin, so it wouldn't be right to call me a fan. However, I was still excited to watch this movie, when I learned that there would be a movie adaptation of the famous Tintin.
I liked this film a whole lot! I like stories that have mystery and sleuthing in them. That's why I'm fans of Detective Conan and Nancy Drew! After watching this film, I also got very interested in Tintin! Aside from the mystery parts in this movie, there were also many humorous moments. There were many parts where the audience was literally laughing out loud. It's that good!
Have I mentioned that this film is absolutely beautiful? Everything looked great.. I almost want to watch it again just so I could marvel at the beautiful graphics. The action scenes were very intense, too. Mad props to the director and writers.
Watching this film has made me want to try reading the Tintin comics. I can't wait. This is a great film for everyone to watch! I, who didn't know too much about Tintin, really enjoyed this one!

Kate Reddy lives a busy life. She is a high-rising finance executive
and a mother of two young children. She is often away from home,
causing family strains and whatnot. What happens when Kate suddenly
gets a big assignment, that requires her to stay away from home for
more than two months?
To be honest, I was at a struggle to write a summary for this movie. I couldn't think. Words couldn't come to me. This movie didn't do anything for me. The movie played for 80+ minutes, but there was no real progression in its story line. Nothing happened.. Really. After the movie ended, I wondered what exactly was it that the directors wanted to show to its audience.
I don't recommend watching this movie, unless you're looking for a time waster.. If that's the case, go ahead and rent this movie.
